Just about everyone, including me, in the tech world has been waiting for a new Lumia flagship phone since the Lumia 930 that came out last year from Microsoft, and that time may be right around the corner. We reported almost a month ago on rumours that Microsoft was going to be holding an October event to unveil a few new devices. It’s now official, and Microsoft will be holding a Windows 10 devices event on Tuesday, October 6th at the Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City which will start at 10 am EST.
No hints were given when Microsoft sent out invitation for their event, but based on our previous article, we can take a pretty good guess that the Lumia 950 (Talkman) and Lumia 950 XL (Cityman) might be shown there. The rumored specs both phones have will come with a 2K display, 3GB of RAM, 20 megapixel cameras, a microSD card slot, and the OS could be Windows 10. The screen on the LUmia 950 is rumoured to be 5.2 inches, while the 950 XL is said to have a 5.7″ screen. With the 5.7 inch screen size, this might be a Note5 competitor.
The Lumia 950 with have a Snapdragon 808 SoC and the Lumia 950 XL will have the Snapdragon 810 SoC. Let’s hope it will be running the Snapdragon 810 v2.1, and not the first generation Snapdragon 810. Microsoft can’t afford to have their newest flagship phone overheating in the hands of consumers.
The Surface Pro 4 might also make an appearance on October 6th. The Surface Pro 4 is rumored to have a 14 inch screen with a 4K display and possibly 16GB of RAM. Let’s not forget there was also mention that another Microsoft fitness Band might have been in the works, as well as the possibility of a new version of the Xbox One console.
Rumors are rumors, so be sure to take everything with a grain of salt until the event date.
